This study is based on the assumption that there is a need for identifying, selecting, counseling, and developing teacher competencies and the recognition of the need for further studies in defining the good teacher. Such studies should contribute to more efficients methods of selecting and preparing teachers. The problem of selecting persons who are apt to make good teachers, and who have a reasonable high potential is of primary importance. By statistically selecting a brief battery of tests from a larger battery, thi study hopes to present the counselors at the College of the Pacific with a practical and usable battery of tests which will aid in their selection, counseling, and guidance of prospective teachers.
The problem of this study is as follows: Is it possible to select from a large battery of tests a minimum selection of tests which will offer relatively the same information offered by the original battery?
